Kayaking on Idrija river

The spring is always very early here, in the Soca valley, in Slovenia. Last weekend we were expecting some rain, and one for our friend, Bojan Rušjan told, if we are lucky, we can try to paddle on Idrija river. It is a small creek on the border of Italy and Slovenia. Close to the Soca valley, Idrija is one of those creeks, which is possible to paddle only after a big rain.…

been a while

Life in the day of electonic comunnications takes its toll. I do a few web pages , a personal blog this page and some other stuff. Very easy to forgetto stop by and keep things updated. Being the middle of a bloody cold winter, not a lot happeninng here boat wise. Still a good season to plan trips and dream. I must admit each year a location on an ocean with warm water is looking better and better all the time. I pickedup a tandem Seaward kayak this fall and she needs some basic work a few…

Kokatat GORE-TEX® Icon Dry Suit with Relief Zipper and Socks - Men

The Kokatat Jackson Collection GORE-TEX® Icon rear-entry dry suit is easily recognizable with its bold colors and details like fresh graphics on the arm, a denim blue stripe down the leg, and color blocking on the back of the legs.

corran Hydra

The Hydra has to be the best thing to come along in quite some time for paddleboarding. This remarkable board solves many issues for the recreational user. The 9′ board breaks down into three pieces which can be carried in a bag on public transport, checked onto an airplane, put into the back of your Smart Car, and when you’re all done, fits neatly in your shoe closet.

NRS Czar 6

The 9'6" NRS Czar Inflatable SUP Board is the NRS Tyrant SUP on steroids. Same surf-ready lines, grippy deck surface, stomp pad and interchangeable fins, but 6" longer and 2" thicker to accommodate larger paddlers.

Bic Sport Dura-Tec SUP 9'10"

The new 9’10 is a shorter, wider board with plenty of floatation and usable deck area for family fun, especially exploring lakes and other flat, still water. A hybrid vee-shaped bow improves both glide and tracking despite the boards shorter length. The added stability and flat deck make the 9’10 a great board for fitness and yoga. A reassuringly solid multi-purpose board.

PenobscotPaddles: Low Tide at Lamoine

Lamoine State Park is a lovely location, fields and forest beside the sea, the mountains of Mount Desert Island as a backdrop. Picnicking, camping, swimming and boating are available activities. My favorite is exploring at low tide.

Jackson Kayak: Journey River Love

I originally wanted a pair of kayaks to do reconnaissance for cleanups. There is a 100 mi. stretch of the Big River that I just don’t know enough about. (a pair, 1-13.5 & 1-14, because it is never wise to go boating alone AND I have a tribe of great kids and other friends who are game to join me).

Jackson Kayak: Idaho Wave Boating

On my way back from Payette River Games, and the rest of the pro circuit this year, I got a sweet chance to hit up some wicked Idaho waves! We were headed to Missoula for a stop before going back to Connecticut, but with the higher water in Idaho, I got treated to a pair of sweet waves, Couch Wave and Pipeline, on the way there! Such an awesome day, and ridiculously cool drive.
